TROMSØ - MIDSUMMER
Tromsø - The Arctic Capital of the North and has around 75.000 inhabitants. Tromsø is situated at 69° Latitude and placed in the middle of the Aurora Oval. During the Midnight Sun you will not be able to see the Northern Lights, but you we see other amazing Nordic Light and presents you with an array of wonderful locations to photograph. Tromsø has become very popular, but for our photo tour however we will enjoy the less popular and unspoiled locations. This tour will be a combination of some ease hikes up in the mountains to get stunning views over the archipelago and some easy to reach locations.
Our location for 7 nights will on the island of Kvaløya or near Lyngen and from here we will start to explore and photograph Kvaløya’s and Lyngen’s stunning nature. This tour will be co-lead with a local guide from Tromsø Norway - Robin Bræck Tøllefsen.
As the SUN will not set during mid April until mid August (depending on the Latitude) we will spend most of our time shooting between 8pm and 3am as the light during this time is soft and spreads its glory. When the weather is gracious to us, we will hike up some mountains to enjoy the breathtaking views over the fjords and we capture how the sun will descends and ascends. Just something you do not want to miss.
This photo tour / workshop will be a combination of easy to reach locations and some moderate / easy mountain hiking.
